Federal election 2022: Anthony Albanese to continue campaign from home while he isolates

Prime Minister Scott Morrison will continue to campaign as his opponent Anthony Albanese is forced into isolation after testing positive for COVID-19.

While wishing Mr Albanese well, the prime minister says 50,000 Australians catch the virus every day and continue on with their lives.

“You just get on with it,” Mr Morrison told the Seven Network.

“When I had COVID … we had Quad meetings, major presentations and I’m sure (Mr Albanese) will be able to do that from his home in Sydney.

“Hopefully the symptoms aren’t too bad but I wish him a speedy recovery.”

Senior Nationals senator Bridget McKenzie said “the stakes are very high at the moment” when asked whether the coalition has an advantage.

“We’ve got a strong campaign and a strong proposition for the Australian people,” she told the ABC.

The Labor leader returned a positive result following a routine PCR test on Thursday afternoon, but is not showing symptoms.

Mr Albanese was due to fly out on Friday from Sydney to campaign in Western Australia.

He will instead isolate at his home in Sydney for seven days.

“While at home I will continue my responsibilities as alternative prime minister and will be fighting for a better future for all Australians,” he said.

“I am grateful to know that I will have access to the world’s best health care if I need it, because of Medicare.”
